Templates for Standardized Note-taking

We made filling out treatment plans and recording visit details quick and easy by using templates.

Go to Setup on the main menu bar within Orthodontic Charting, and for every field (like “Habits” “Findings” “Treatments”) you can enter in every note you’re likely to use.
